I suppose that it would be possible to define a xml-stylesheet kind of  
referencing using, e.g., xml-timesheet reference. However, the  
Timesheet language already has the timesheet element and its src  
attribute to do this. The link element example is given in the  
specification to show how timesheet can be referenced in non-XML  
languages. Could you show an example of case, where the timesheet  
element cannot be used to reference the Timesheet in XML language. If  
there is a clear need to provide other ways to reference external  
Timesheets documents in XML languages, we could document it in the  
future versions of Timesheets language.
